    Pros

    Outstanding benefits, great management team, the fact that majority of company is non-union is big advantage.

    Cons

    Sometimes expected to work long days to deliver the customer service experience expected from Delta.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue down path which keeps Delta as one of the best and most respected airlines in the world!

    Pros

    High starting wage for entry level job. I can only speak for my station, but my co-workers look out for each other and are willing to switch shifts on a moment notice. Great flight benefits, vacation, medical.... great culture.

    Cons

    My station seems chronically understaffed, which requires us to scramble at times on the ramp, which may cause unsafe actions. Safety is purported as paramount, but we are forced to cut corners to push planes out on time.

    Pros

    Delta has a great culture to develop and promote people from within the organization. Top notch sales training dept, great leadership and overall awesome flight benefits.

    Cons

    Compensation is on the low end. If you get steady promotions (say every 2-3 years) you always end up on the bottom end of the pay band for the position you are in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow HR compensation and managers to pay employees you promote market value salaries vs the standard 5% bump or minimum of pay band.

    Pros

    You are able to talk to Management about your career and also have a great chance of moving up.

    Cons

    I think that the ramp agents should get paid more. I also would suggest that everybody is able to get the pay rate matching or beating other airlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great management team and they also will do ground work.
